Shoveler in the Ice

One of our favorite birds is the Northern Shoveler. We are especially fond of their huge, spatulate bills. This Shoveler was right next to the frozen plants and water in the Klamath Basin. It was swimming and looking for food. The weather was so brutal that most of the water was frozen except for small, shallow, fresh water ponds like this one.
